The Power of Caitlyn’s Song

Not so long ago I arrived at my work in the A&E Department of the Hospital when the Ward Manager asked who could volunteer to work for the day in the paediatric ward instead of A&E – to lend a hand as they were short of staff. Although normally I don’t like to move to another department because I don’t like to risk my comfort, that day my disposition was so open and full that I agreed. I went there to find that I had to look after a 14-month-old girl who had been physically abused: she was alone in her cot.

No family members were allowed to visit and the staff were asked to be with her all the time. We had to take her to the X-Ray Department for scans that were required to determine the extent of the damage to her bones and organs. She was bruised in different places and seemed very withdrawn, not wanting to make eye contact or have any other communication with us.

I could have dropped into sympathy, and started absorbing her drama: it would have been easy for me to say “poor girl”. Instead I felt she was just like me – with her suffering, her light, and her lived experiences, so I decided to treat her with special gentleness and tenderness, just as I have seen demonstrated by Universal Medicine practitioners. I very deliberately placed the blanket around her with extra care and delicateness, focussing on those gestures with my fingers. And, at the same time saying in silence, with my body: “This is what you have not had, this is what you deserve.”

We then went to get her scans and had to stay in the waiting area for a while, so I had the idea of playing the song by Michael Benhayon‘Caitlyn´s Song’ – that I had in my phone. If you have not heard it, it is the most beautiful, clear and luminous music and words for any baby in the world. I was singing along with the words “You shine so bright so just keep your light on” and saying to her – you have never had this kind of love, but you deserve this beauty, your essence is the same as me, as Caitlyn, as everyone.

It was such an experience of light that the whole X-Ray waiting area was shining and I could see that a couple of people felt the love, saw what was happening and were smiling at us two. She then fell asleep.

After having nearly 18 different X-Rays we went back to the ward. She had her food and spent all afternoon talking (not proper words yet, but singing and chatting along) to the nurses, reaching for us, for contact, joyful and playful like any little girl.

The change was almost unbelievable – but not for me, because I knew! She was communicating with us and the paediatrician confirmed, “She now trusts us.” She was pulling my shirt and my trousers; she was a different girl to the one I first met laying in the cot alone and withdrawn.

I knew that she had received a true healing through my openness and true care for her. I also knew it was not only me, but that heavenly helpers were there with us – the healing that had occurred was so obvious.

My heart expanded and I felt that this baby girl now had the chance to not shut down completely, to keep her heart open and to keep shining her light. When she grows up no matter how long it takes her to fully heal from her past, she now has a marker in her body that will stay forever, one that she can come back to. She has felt the depth of the support (that is available to us all) from above; she has felt true love.

This showed me what we are all capable of when we let our little selves out of the way and instead connect to the greatness of the love that is inside and all around us… Miracles happen.

I give thanks to Serge Benhayon, his whole family, and the practitioners of Universal Medicine Therapies, who, because of their daily commitment to living in this way, are a constant inspiration for me.

Thank you, Michael Benhayon, for your selfless commitment in bringing this very healing, powerful music to the world.

  1. “I knew that she had received a true healing through my openness and true care for her.” This is huge JC. When we get ourselves out of the way and let the power of love do its thing we allow for true healing. Thank you JC for a deeply inspiring blog.

  2. You’ve given this little girl a wonderful marker in her body of how life can be and of how she truly deserves to be honoured.

  3. I love coming back to your story JM, it is so simple yet oh so powerful. What a divine blessing for that little girl and for you, what a beautiful, loving and caring nurse you are. My eyes welled when I read this;
    “I very deliberately placed the blanket around her with extra care and delicateness, focussing on those gestures with my fingers. And, at the same time saying in silence, with my body: “This is what you have not had, this is what you deserve.”

  4. This showed me what we are all capable of when we let our little selves out of the way and instead connect to the greatness of the love that is inside and all around us… Miracles happen. Yes they do, I am also a walking miracle if I ponder and reflect on how closed down I was, had absolutely no trust in anyone and for the most part did not want to be ‘ here’. I have changed so much, by making many different choices and the catalyst for my healing choices was when I attended courses by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.

    1. Jacqmcfadden04 thankyou for your profound comment, it’s true for me too as before Universal Medicine workshops I was so shut down and given up on life and of ever really feeling joy or any form of wellbeing again. At each course I have felt so deeply held in love – no judgment, no sympathy, just understanding, and the most loving and tender treatment in the form of the Universal Medicine therapies. I was offered exactly what was offered to the little girl and the healing I experienced has been profound.

  5. This is such a gorgeous and powerful blog to read.. the powerful message being we are so much more than our ‘ hurts’, and that when we open up (our hearts) love and grace just flows like a gentle wave flowing in and then flowing out, and that our bodies are simply instruments of love.

  6. How beautiful that the true possible healing power of music was demonstrated in such a place, and indeed it actually is possible to feel the magic in these moments… And everyone can feel it…. That is the wonderful thing

  7. This is such a touching experience and still inspires me even after reading it several times! The inspiration is in the power we all have to hold each other as equals, be totally open and move with love no matter who is around. We never know who we may be healing just by walking in the Glory of our Love.

  8. Reading this blog again I could feel myself allowing sympathy for the baby to drop in – until I reached the line, ‘I could have dropped into sympathy, and started absorbing her drama: it would have been easy for me to say “poor girl”.’ This snapped me straight out of it and I was able to then keep reading and allow greater understanding for what was going on. Could that be why we go to sympathy? So we then do not have the responsibility of reading a situation for what it is? In my opinion, there is no way any healing would have happened if sympathy was the driving force of the care.

  9. So beautiful and touching to read JM, of the power of your healing touch through love acceptance and an equal holding of this childs light. Powerful are the words in Michaels song to bring true healing.

  10. This just blows me away J.M as it demonstrates the true power we all possess by simply allowing ourselves to be open and tender with all. Thank you for sharing such an inspiring moment.

  11. Founding a world where we all lovingly cared for each other in a way that said “This is what you have not had, this is what you deserve” would literally transform all of our lives.

  12. My favourite song on the album, there is something exquisite about it that reminds me of the tenderness I have (and we all have) inside… it always has a profound effect.

  13. Going into sympathy would have further entrenched the victimhood in this little girl but from you meeting her so beautifully in her essence you’ve shown her who she truly is and that she deserves to be met in her exquisite tenderness.

  14. I just love coming back to this blog JM, it is such a beautiful testimony to the power of love, your steadiness and your ability to not let sympathy in; so much to appreciate. Your love and light is such a blessing to this little girl, as is Michael’s divine song.

  15. What an amazing blog showing us what love can do, it is magical and sometimes when we are so withdrawn and hurt having someone non-imposingly reflect true love is extremely powerful beyond words. When we connect to who we are and that knowingness that we are all love, it is truly powerful. Your blog JM demonstrates this so beautifully and deeply heart-warming to read.

  16. JM what a beautiful sharing you make in this blog. How little love it took to potentially change this tiny child’s life is a miracle but also a miracle we can have every single day if we choose to be and express love.

  17. Thank you for sharing this very intimate and revealing story from your workplace; working with children who have been abused in this way can be very challenging and the turnaround you describe is like a miracle.

  18. This is so beautiful, the gift this child felt, by you just being open, not judging, not absorbing, just allowing and sharing your love. Miracles like this are possible all the times.

  19. There really is so much tragedy and violence in the world that it behoves us now to know ourselves to such a depth that we don’t just react in horror, but we can forge forward bringing our love to where it is most needed, and that is , everywhere.

  20. A stunning experience, gave me goosebumps at certain parts. What’s amazing to read is that there were no expectations from you of how she would react to the song or anything else, just being yourself and being that reflection for her.

  21. This is beautiful JM. This the power of music that is clear, without emotion it can heal. Recently I went to watch a friend who is a music teacher at a school perform two of Michaels songs with some students at the school. This was performed in front of about 300 people, and that night the whole audience received a healing . During the whole first song tears flowed over my face for I could feel the healing that was taking place all around me.

  22. Wow JM, no matter how many times I read this blog I experience the same opening up of my heart. What you did for this little girl was very beautiful, but no more than we should all do for each other, if we connected to the love that we are inside and expressed that to everyone. Imagine how many miracles there would be if we all dropped our protection and connected to each others essences.

  23. Absolutely JL, what an incredible moment of healing for both of you and all that read.. It is amazing to feel your dedication to not go into this sympathy but absolute strength and care which supported her to not further dwell in emotions or trauma but recognized her for who she is.. Very profound and lets broaden this example, lets all establish a foundation so we can offer this healing to eachother.

  24. ‘My heart expanded and I felt that this baby girl now had the chance to not shut down completely, to keep her heart open and to keep shining her light.’ So beautiful JL your dedication to the love that we all are has given her life a new beginning.

  25. Beautiful JM, well shared with us, these examples must always be shared; they are magnificent and by sharing the healing gets multiplied. As all others will feel it too when they read it. And at the same time it inspires how to take true stock when we are not absorbing into emotions we can present in intense/extreme situations.. and that we can give just by not going in it, but actually stay in our light (being ourselves).

  26. Michael Benhayon’s music offers us a moment of initiation – an ability other artists have not yet re-awakened into.

  27. Indeed JM miracles do happen; what a beautiful inspiring story, thank you.
    “I knew that she had received a true healing through my openness and true care for her.” What a gorgeous miracle and blessing for her and for you.

  28. What a beautiful story you share JM. Michael Benhayon’s music is indeed powerful and Glorious Music (http://www.gloriousmusic.com.au) is supportive and healing for the body.
    “I was singing along with the words “You shine so bright so just keep your light on” and saying to her – you have never had this kind of love, but you deserve this beauty, your essence is the same as me, as Caitlyn, as everyone”.

  29. When I first read this blog I cried as I remember experiencing that same feeling of deep love and care when first being introduced to Universal Medicine and listening to the music of Michael Benhayon which is full of confirming the light within us all. Today I cried as I could feel that deep love and care within me and how I have lived not expressing it in full/completely denying myself and everyone this tenderness. We do have it in us to be deeply loving and caring, in fact it IS us and yet as you shared JM when we give our focus to ourselves and nothing more we miss out on such grandness and this is what hurts us most.

  30. Sympathy confirms someone in their issue. Observing allows you to see the issue and beyond, which confirms who they truly are and not their choice or circumstance.

  31. The experiences many people have in life can cause them to distrust not only those that have hurt them but all others too. This is an understandable reaction but ultimately not healthy in the long term – for when you shut out everyone you also shut out the potential of them supporting you to heal too.

  32. Thank you JM, I am always so deeply moved by this blog. It’s truly such a loving gift we can give to ourselves and all around us to know we are all love, that we are Sons of God, divine, a soul – however it’s worded the truth is the same and felt the same.

  33. I love this story, the level of love that was given to that little girl is so beautiful, and what is so lovely is we can bring that level of love to everyone we meet, regardless of age, treating one another with tenderness and thoughtful care.

  34. There are incidents and hurts we may think one can not ever be free of and that they will dominate our whole life, but there is nothing that can not be healed; not in an instant and it may require some work but nevertheless it will be healed one day, this is guaranteed, when we choose to open up to the healing.

    1. “it will be healed one day, this is guaranteed, when we choose to open up to the healing” – I love the ‘this is guaranteed’ line. It is all so solid when I choose to reconnect to responsibility and open up for true healing. Truth is very solid…I miss that in daily life. Good reflection for me. Note to myself: I am longing for solidness – lets become it, by reconnecting to truth.

  35. Coming back to your beautifully heart warming blog today was such a joy. To read again of this little girl who was offered the gift of true love by you at a moment in time when she would have felt lost and confused was so inspiring; an example of the healing power of true music, in this case Glorious Music from Michael Benhayon.

  36. We are all longing for this – someone who says: “you deserve this beauty”, because we are coming from this beauty. It is our right to feel it, therefore we have to live it. To reflect this truth into this world is so precious for all of us! Lets look into the mirror every day and say: you deserve this beauty, you are this beauty! And than reflect the beauty while our day unfolds and let others feel it to. This is our power.

  37. It is not time but love that heals all wounds – true love. All wounds are caused because we have compromised the love we are hence love restores us back to our true making.

  38. Wow, remarkable. To hold yourself and to not go into emotion or sympathy is absolutely amazing – I feel like I would’ve been a mess being in that situation! It’s inspiring to read your story and know that by holding ourselves we can hold another. Simply being Love.

  39. This is a blog that in one sense truly needs no words for sometimes words as you have shown just aren’t needed… on the other hand the power of love expressed like this can’t but be deeply appreciated for the incredible healing it can offer.

  40. JM, this is a mega healing for the world to see and read. As it is showing us that we are forever capable of healing when we open up our hearts and share that openness with each other, as this example has delicately shown.. What a gorgeous learning of life, that in no way sympathy could have brought (or I should say, what sympathy would not allow – to simply be me).

  41. Thank you so much for sharing this story. The power of love, tenderness and true care without an ounce of sympathy is so powerful. It reminds us that we are not our life events or hurts. We are that light that needs to keep shining brightly.

    1. Great point Fiona. When we give in to sympathy, we give away the opportunity for true healing to unfold, so that the great light we are from and equally are in essence is rightly embraced.

  42. I love coming back to your blog JM, such a beautiful story of love, care and deep connection, I very much appreciate what you have shared;
    “I knew that she had received a true healing through my openness and true care for her. I also knew it was not only me, but that heavenly helpers were there with us”.

  43. This is such a beautiful story of healing, and what stands out are the changes that occurred during the time she was with you JM, and it shows that it is not necessary to approach these types of situations with sympathy.

  44. A very powerful testament of how whenever our Souls are met with a quality of energy that is of Soul, the wonders of who we are are inspired to be, to heal and to come to life once again. This is the true power of music when impulsed from the Soul that it is the embrace of God through sound reminding us of who we are in essence, all equally His children. What a blessing for this baby girl to have met you, to have been met with true love, a marker of love of who she truly is for all time. Thank you Cherise for this deeply beautiful sharing of what is possible when we choose to align to the magic of love.

  45. As of late I became more aware of the healing power we have by simply staying with us, holding another person in absolute equalness and giving space to them to just be where they are. What is beautiful is to feel the silent dialogue between bodies that takes place while we may be talking and how the other body says yes to what is on offer to them and how they shift almost immediately. It is beautiful to feel.

  46. I often consider what difference it would make if I didn’t get pulled into sympathy and this blog is testament to the power of trusting. It is knowing you are walking beside someone, not there to fix their problems in a few hours but to remind someone who hasn’t experienced love in this world that there is love and we can be it because we are from it.

  47. So lovely to come back to this blog, a true love story, a beautiful testimonial of the power we have when we choose to be with ourselves and connect to love, she got no sympathy from you but a reflection of what love is in human form.

  48. What a beautiful constellation for you to be asked to care for this little girl at such a crucial time and how by staying open and not going into sympathy you supported her to open up and trust again.

  49. Thank you for sharing this amazing example of the healing power of true music and the transformations that can occur. Your loving care and the gift of Michael Benhayon’s music are undoubtedly a winning combination.

  50. Truly beautiful. Imagine if each moment in life where something happened to us where we had the choice either to carry that hurt with us for years if not lifetimes to come, or to drop it and come back to love, we chose the latter.

  51. I love this story. This is so beautiful and reflect so much the true healing family Benhayon bring to the world. And how great JM that you could hold her with seeing her grandness and not in victimhood. This way you could bring all that love to her. Very very beautiful.

  52. “I could have dropped into sympathy, and started absorbing her drama: it would have been easy for me to say “poor girl”. Instead I felt she was just like me – with her suffering, her light, and her lived experiences, so I decided to treat her with special gentleness and tenderness…”. The power of love. Imagine if we chose to view each other this way, what an amazing world it would become, where we offered understanding, equality, and importantly love to each other.

  53. “I knew that she had received a true healing through my openness and true care for her. I also knew it was not only me, but that heavenly helpers were there with us – the healing that had occurred was so obvious..” This is very beautiful JM. When we open our hearts unimaginable healing can happen.. What a beautiful constellation that you agreed to go to the paediatric ward that day.

  54. Wow, this is one of my favourite things I’ve ever read – I am so inspired. How powerful and how important is every moment we spend with someone, and every time we touch another person, what if we have the potential the whole time to help another person open up and feel love again no matter what they’ve been through? If this is possible then we have to take every single moment so seriously, because there’s literally not a moment to be wasted.

  55. Miracles do happen everyday, and reading this blog is a timely reminder of this and also for me to be more aware to clock them and not let them go by unnoticed, for the more we see the more the more we can trust in the beauty and the magic all around us.
